Burrata Caprese

Trang Nguyen


One of my favorites at the Italian restauatnt but now that I found the burrata cheese at Costco, I'll never have to spend $10 for this salad ever again! If you've never had burrata and you love the traditional caprese, you'll love this more! The cheese is creamy and softer than the fresh mozzarella and they are addictive!

This is about $2.50 to make at home per ball. The burrata cheese comes in a plastic container at Costco ($5.99) and each container 16 ounce. So each ball is 4 ounces. First time I made it, I only made 1 ball and 1 tomato so my husband and I fought for the last serving! But second time i made it, I made 2 calls because I can finish one all by myself;)


1 Burrata ball
1 sliced Roma tomato
Fresh Basil leaves
Balsamic vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil

You place the burrata on your plating dish. You cut 1 slice of burrata, then layer in 1 slice of tomato, 1 basil leaf and repeat until done. Then add salt/grated pepper and drizzle balsamic vinegar and olive oil on top!



This one was made with fresh mozzarella cheese since we couldn't find burrata.
